Dejal has announced Time Out 2.3, an update to their break reminder app for macOS. 

Using a computer for hours on end can lead to eye, back, and neck strain. Time Out 2 offers users reminders to take breaks, allowing them to stretch and relax. Version 2.3 adds the ability to show the number of times each break has been postponed, skipped, and/or done today, and can set daily limits on postponing and skipping. There's also a mini-pie-chart option, and High Sierra compatibility.
